    Working my way through building this with 4 forms of payment: Paypal Canada, Paypal USA, Interac (Purchase Order tool), and Local Pickup (Purchase order). The problem I see right now: is there a way when you add or update a product to make it propagate automatically through all 4 forms?

    Hi,

    Since the Multiple Payment Form is basically a multiple form, it will always have an independent fields on its own. Any changes/updates you do on a form, will not reflect on the other form.

    The best way to shorten the task is to create a template form, then just clone the template to create 4 other similar form that contains the barebone fields (or products for i.e.)

    You can then separately edit the cloned  form accordingly.

    Please inform us if this is not what your inquiry is about. 


    Thanks.

    Thanks for that, so it sounds like the instructions for creating a multiple payment form in fact already have you doing this. Where it says"

    "1. Create a new form tha will be your payment form for PayPal, and make sure you add there the information that you will collect from the user such as the name, address, etc. and save your form."

    That in fact would be the same thing as your template form wouldn't it, as when you clone it, you have the option to delete the payment tool and then add another one.

    Hi,

    My apology if I am not able to completely understood your original inquiry. My initial response was base on my understanding that:

    1. You wanted to have 4 types of payment in the form

    2. Since it will require multiple forms, you wanted to have the means to easily propagate the same products to the other forms when you edit or update the products.

    Base on this, I suggested cloning the form at least 4 times, then you can edit the cloned form.

     In the clone form, deleting the products will prompt you if you want to retain it and be used on another type of payment field. You can now then change the type of payment for the form currently being edited.

    "That in fact would be the same thing as your template form wouldn't it, as when you clone it, you have the option to delete the payment tool and then add another one."

    Yes this is correct. When you delete the payment tool, it will prompt you if you want to retain the items/products so that you can re-use it to another type of payment tool

    i.e.

    If you delete paypal tool, you can add authorize.net tool and it will retain the items/products that were in paypal tool.

    Hope I was able to explain it better this time. Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    Thanks.
